The Weepies - "World Spins Madly On"
The Weepies stand on the line between "known" and "unknown" and it's a coin toss whether or not you've heard of them. An indie folk-pop group, their music has been featured in countless television shows (Grey's Anatomy, Scrubs, Everwood, and How I Met Your Mother to name a few) and their track, "Can't Go Back Now" was in a campaign ad for Barak Obama's presidential campaign. So chances are you've heard them somewhere. Or maybe not. You never know...
Whirl Magnet - "Hanging By A Line"
I love Whirl Magnet. Their "Altered States" album is simply tremendous. This is far from the best song on the album. I really like "Ain't It Strange", but the musical intro made it much too long to use when introducing the band.
Curbs - "The World"
Some indie-alt rock since the today's other tracks were on the very mellow side of things.
